Last night it was being reported that Beth Holloway was arrested in Peru. Half of that report is true — the part about her being in Peru. Holloway travelled to Peru after watching the recent interview Van Der Sloot did on Dutch TV, which was then sold to NBC. She was also accompanied by a Dutch TV crew. Obviously, she had permission to enter the facility in Peru — you don’t just sneak into a prison. Beth was infuriated by comments made by Van Der Sloot in his recent interview. She confronted Van Der Sloot in his cell and spoke to him for several minutes, demanding answers as to what happened to her daughter. Then when prison officials realized this was all being filmed, they asked her and the crew to leave. I wonder who is going to buy this tape and how much will they pay? I haven’t agreed with everything Beth Holloway has done, and people are criticizing her for what she did –confronting Joran. I’ve never lost a child, but I would probably have done the same thing. I will be discussing this on my radio show Sunday night at 8:00 p.m.
